      You are most welcome – and so very kind!!!

  2. Gessell C Frisbee says:

    I did it! Whew is right lol! Thanks Tracie!!!!!!

    1. Tracie Fobes says:

      YEAH!!!! It is scary if you don’t know what to do so I am glad this was helpful!

  3. Thanks so much for this! FYI, the Siteground fields for DNS Zone Editor have changed significantly (for example, selecting “1 hour” instead of 3600) and I believe Google Search Console now requires pasting the *whole* Sitemap file name (unless I did it wrong – ha!)…but I figured it out. I am a newbie and your instructions were so helpful! Thank you again!

    1. Tracie Fobes says:

      Yeah – they changed the dashboard and I am waiting to see that on my end so that I can update the instructions. (And, I am not so patiently waiting).

  4. Oh my gosh, finally an easy to follow guide. Wish I’d found your blog 3 months ago. Thank you so much.

    1. Tracie Fobes says:

      I am so happy it was helpful!!!!

  5. This was a great walkthrough to confirm that I had, in fact, set up Search Console correctly a few months ago. Do you have any resources on how to navigate the data SC provides? Specifically, I’m curious about Coverage. I don’t have any data there. Thanks!

  6. Hi Tracie, I have copied and pasted the code into my Scripts in Header box and it shows the code on my site. I’m not sure how to make it hide or why it is showing in the first place. Anyone else have trouble with this?

    1. Tracie Fobes says:

      Make sure you put it in the righ place and did not forget any line of the code. Even a missing “<" can make it not work properly.

  7. Once again very clear and easy to follow Thank you so much Tracie!

    1. Tracie Fobes says:

      You are very welcome! I am glad I was able to make it easy for you to follow and implement.

      You are most welcome! I am glad that I was able to help you.

  9. Thanks Tracie! This was very thorough and helpful!

  10. Oh goodness. I’m so glad I got rid of Jetpack and followed your directions. I’ve been trying to figure out why my site was so slow for a week now. You are a goddess!

  11. Hi Tracie, Very nice and detailed guide. I have installed Insert Headers and Footers plugin. However, its last update was more than 2 months ago and it shows “untested with your version of WordPress.” I’m running the latest (5.4) WP version. Should I use this plugin or revert to Monster Insights? Monster Insights shows compatible with this version of WP.

    1. Tracie Fobes says:

      It should be OK as it is not anything but a placer. It puts the content where it needs to go on your site.

      1. Neha Srivastava says:

        Thanks, this puts me at ease to use it.

      You are most welcome! I am glad that it was easy for you to follow.

  14. Thank you for making this SO EASY!!! This was an extremely helpful post that I will be sure to share if anyone asks me!

  15. Hi Tracie, I have to admit I have NO IDEA what I’m doing, so I just blindly followed your steps as I read that it’s important (I’m a new blogger). Thank you for this article!

    1. Tracie Fobes says:

      Welcome to the world of blogging!! Reach out if you need anything!

  16. LaTanya Howard says:

    Thanks so much Tracie!!! There’s so much that goes into blogging but I am enjoying every step!

    1. Tracie Fobes says:

      You are welcome!! And yes – it takes a lot to learn how to do all the things with blogging. But, the good news is that once you connect your site to Google Analytics and Search console, that piece is done.

  17. Thank you for the tutorial! I was hesitant to even try but the instructions were easy to understand 🙂

  18. Tracie, this tutorial was incredibly helpful, thank you so much for your clear and easy to follow instructions! I am a complete newbie and truly have no idea what I am doing, but was able to set up Google Analytics and Search Console by following the steps in this post, and am shocked it all worked. Again, thank you!!
